MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: “Hamilton” in Kettering, Boston, and London

At 4:00 PM, I settled in with Joshua and David in London, Anne and Phil (Dave’s parents) in Boston, to watch the musical, HAMILTON.

Last July, we were all caught up in the HAMILTON bubble of excitement as it premiered on the Disney Channel.

Had the pandemic receded greatly, Anne, Phil, and I hoped to be starting our three-week London adventure, courtesy of our sons who wanted to return the favor of our three-week London gift to them in 2017. Needless to say, Sunday was a bittersweet day.

Each Sunday, Anne, Phil, and I sip our morning coffees as we chat together with the boys who take their lunch with our five hour time difference. A few weeks ago, I suggested we do a Zoom group every day of the three weeks we were to be in London.

Yesterday afternoon, we watched HAMILTON together. In 2016, we parents gifted the sons with a dinner and tickets to HAMILTON in Los Angeles for their Christmas.

I’m glad we turned Operation: London 2020 into something we could still share together.

Sometimes, making it a great day requires moving beyond the missed moments and thinking outside the box.
